found you! sorry you had such a bad day yesterday. hope you're feeling a bit brighter today.

I triggered last Night but terrified I did it wrong! I'm going to have to ring the clinic this morning cos I didn't sleep well worrying about it.

MotorcycleMama Tue 02-Jul-13 07:10:37

Morning tame - thanks for sorting the new thread. I had started to panic a bit! Can I be miserable today please? I'm so sure that this hasn't worked. I have no symptoms at all and am now 3dp5dt. I know it is early days, but I am put in mind of when I knew that the baby had died just prior to my 12 week scan in 2008. Everyone was trying to reassure me that all was okay, but I knew it wasn't, and I was right. The only redeeming thing I can take from that was that I didn't even know I was pregnant til I was 6 weeks gone (can you imagine?) so I certainly know you can be apparently symptom free and still pregnant.

Anyway, sorry to begin the thread with negativity, but I'm feeling rubbish.

Hello to you all!

tametortie Tue 02-Jul-13 07:19:16

motor sounds totally normal to me! Sit tight, you dont know what may be happening in there smile I think we have all started to get negative around 3dpt! You just convince yourself it won't work <hair stroke>

nobeer I missed you off my personals yesterday- sorry! Yay to trigger- ec tomorrow?

I feel better this morning BUT it seems to creep up on me in the day and its the evenings that are horrible. I think its hormones??

resipsa Tue 02-Jul-13 07:21:26

Hi motor. If you got to 6 weeks before without knowing then 3dp5dt is early to feel anything, you're right! Think juicy said she "knew" early but we are all different (and see things differently in hindsight anyway). Stay strong - not too long to go.

resipsa Tue 02-Jul-13 07:22:22

BTW, blame me for filling the last thread but failing to notice or start a new one!

resipsa Tue 02-Jul-13 07:23:54

tame how're you feeling today? Less bleak, I hope.

resipsa Tue 02-Jul-13 07:26:15

Nobeer, talk to the clinic to reassure yourself definitely but I think we all worried we'd done it wrong and hadn't. My take on it is that if you could do it wrong then they wouldn't let us (the paying idiots) do it at all.

tametortie Tue 02-Jul-13 07:28:28

nobeer- you can do a hpt to check. If you did it right the hpt will pick up hormone and come up positive! X

nobeer Tue 02-Jul-13 07:33:42

thanks resipsa and tame . I think the problem is i'm sure I followed the Dr's instructions, but they're different to the little book and there's some liquid left over in the cartridge. i'm going to ring the clinic in a now.

nobeer Tue 02-Jul-13 08:03:53

panic over. the doctor wanted me to have half the dose so it's quite correct that there's half of liquid left.


just got EC to look forward to tomorrow! eek!

mejust Tue 02-Jul-13 08:12:51

Nobeer I was the same but I'm sure you will be fine,respa is right they wouldn't trust us with it if we could screw it up x

Hi respa how are you?

Motor its early days yet if you didn't know before you might not get symptoms for weeks a lot of women don't ,chin up.
My embo said positive mental attitude is important.
When I was pregnant I had symptoms early but that's me everyones different.
Iv got really sore boobs but that could be the pessaries its a mental waiting game,stay positive please x

Tam I found you no prob,how are you today?

Wish if your lurking,I'm thinking of you and wishing you the best x

Life how are you?

Hello, can I join in? You all sound so lovely. Hoping to start ICSI round four next week (3 unsuccessful ICSIs squeezed in before DH deployed to Afghanistan last year and 5 unsuccessful ETs, one from frozen while he was away) and feeling sick about it, tbh. It's really affected my health (long-term ME/CFS) and I'm dreading the next go-round. Male factor to begin with, but now my age (40) seems to be the problem.

Which all sounds kind of depressing, but I'm normally quite cheerful and won't drag y'all down, promise...!

MotorcycleMama, I am crossing my fingers and toes for you. I've been a sometime lurker for a bit and really hope this is your moment.

mejust Tue 02-Jul-13 09:11:06

Hello lizzie
Expat we fill a thread in 2 days ha ha

tametortie Tue 02-Jul-13 09:11:59

lizzie welcome! I will be starting round 4 in a 2/3 months. What stage are you at? Are you injecting? X

JuicySausage Tue 02-Jul-13 09:25:28

Motor, you must remember I've got a super-high hCG level and so have had strong symptoms from the get-go. My cycling buddy on FF is eight days ahead of me and very upset that she has zero symptoms and a hCG of 'only' 472.

Please, my lovely friends, don't look to my experience as a paradigm of early pregnancy. All our bodies are different and we must keep the faith for ourselves as well as each other thanks

Nobeer, PHEW! Relieved on your behalf that you did the right thing. Thinking of you tomorrow at EC.

Where is fabuluce?

Tortie, brave girl, keep looking ahead, we are here thanks

Welcome, LizzieGreystock! That's a proper Jilly Cooper name if ever I heard one. Glad you've joined us and sorry you're struggling with health problems. Stick around, it's a smashing thread which moves fast but it's like Corrie: you can miss it for weeks and then catch up with the plot lines as soon as you jump back in smile

Thinking of Wish x

I found you all <wipes sweat off brow>

Tame I think it is totally normal to feel like you are. And my eyes, you are definitely amazingly brave [smie]

Hello Lizzie! I am new too.

Nobeer so glad you had your mind up at rest. I felt so nervous doing my trigger last night!

Motor it's very early days still. You've only got to read a copy of Just 17 to find the people who didn't know they were pregnant until a baby fell outing in the toilets of burger king.

Expat i get you on the protein thing. So pleased the eggs are being removed tomorrow. You don't just have to eat meat though. Remind me where in your cycle you are?

I had a lie in this morning lazy cow as I had no jab to wake up for. Very strange.

wishicouldhavealargeMalibu Tue 02-Jul-13 09:54:56

Ladies it's official. AF started last night and it hurts like hell.

I'd love to say 'I'm ok' like many of you brave ladies have but I can't. I'm not ok and the thought of getting on with every day life without being pregnant is so scary. And embarrassing because I have to tell the people that know. I have today and tomorrow off work then I'm back to the shit hole without anything to get me through.

It's made me realise how brave you all are. motor and mejust I hope you get the results you deserve along with anyone else doing it all.

I'm sure ill be back and will be lurking but I need to get my head around all this. Love to you all x

LizzieGreystock Tue 02-Jul-13 09:55:26

Thanks mejust and expat for the lovely welcome.

Juicy, thanks a million. I grabbed my handle from Trollope and the character is an inveterate liar, but I promise I am not!

Tame, I'll be on short protocol this time because of my age and poor response the last couple of times. So it's possible I may start stimming by beginning of next week. I'm hoping that avoiding down-regulation this time round may lessen the fatigue. Are you doing anything to prepare for your next go in a couple of months?

We're starting at a new clinic with better numbers but poor admin so it's been a slightly stressful run up to getting everything ready. Now I just have a minor house move this weekend and the fervent hope that AF doesn't arrive early.

eurozammo Tue 02-Jul-13 10:03:59

tame thanks for getting the ball rolling with the new thread.

Welcome lizzie. Timing IVF around trips to the sandpit can't be making things easy for you!

nobeer I'm glad your trigger panic is sorted.

After not really being sure that I could be bothered, I tested this morning to see if the trigger had gone yet (9dpEC). There was still a hint of a line.

JuicySausage Tue 02-Jul-13 10:09:53

Maybe, I forgot you are laying priceless Beluga caviar tomorrow! Hope all goes smoothly.

Wish, I am so, so sorry xx

Lizzie, I have never read Trollope shock Talk to me about her books...
